Very interesting. I just got a catalog from the Republic the other day and was giving this tea an eye. My skin and I have a love-hate relationship too...but I'm still waiting for the love. I'm interested to hear about the results.

I recently switched to a new skin care line--and several of their products have some green and white tea in them. It's called 'Skyn' and I'm awfully impressed. I thought the Sephora lady was selling me a line when she said it helped with stress--but it does. I don't know how...but it does. And better yet, my skin hasn't looked this good since before middle school. Crazy.

That line sounds interesting! If the "Get Gorgeous" experiment fails, I might have to try it. I might have to try it anyways after the experiment is over, because I'm not a huge fan of the taste of this tea...but I'll be writing more about that later.

White Tea

Have you tried the most exotic and expensive white tea in the world. It is called "Golden Tips" as the tea leaf is gold in color.


I have been drinking the Get Gorgeous tea for about 6 weeks now. It was truly the marketing that caught my eye, the brightly colored canisters and well, SKIN!!! I too have a love hate relationship with my skin. I thought Nothing of the tea, as I said, it was the marketing that caught my attention. So I poured my first cup and fell in love with the taste. I also bought "Get a Grip" which did Instant wonders for a crampy belly and out of control moods (don't ya love those mood swings)
Anyway, after 2-3 weeks of drinking this Get Gorgeous tea 2-3 times a day, I noticed my skin was different. I really didn't pay much attention, as I had no idea TEA could do this, nor did I think this Get Gorgeous tea was any different than anything else I would drink...ya just drink it!!!
Well....Not ONE break out in 6 weeks, and I have extremely sensitive skin. I also have larger pores, which seem to attract all kinds of pimple producing stuff.
my pores are almost non existent right face has a slightly rosey complexion. A few more weeks passed and still, no out breaks on my face...just tight, smooth and almost glowing skin. THEN....i noticed after a bit more time, as I was waking up and running my hand up and down my different and smoother, softer my skin felt ALL OVER...everywhere on me.
I've always had soft skin, but NOT like this...this is almost unbelievable.
I will credit the tea for this...and continue to drink my 2-3 cups a day.
The best way to notice something, is to just not pay attention....I've noticed this tea, is amazing, it works, I'm not sure how and why, but it does. And the best part is
I never expected it to.


I know this entry was written forever ago but this tea has saved my skin! I buy it off the company's website in bulk. I'd say I use and reuse two tea bags a day for a total of 4 cups of tea. I'm not really a fan of chamomile tea but this is actually pretty decent. It's good iced too.

Not only does this keep my skin clear but I also look more rested and refreshed. I ran out a few weeks ago and everyone noticed I wasn't looking my best.

It's great to read that this is really working for people!

It's really amazing that tea have so many benefits we can have, it's just fantastic. I've seen some facial cleanser with tea on it as well.
